Idea: unless your doctor is concerned I wouldn't worry about it.
If your doctor is concerned they will give you ideas for gaining weight.
I've only gained two pounds and that worries me a bit because I'm only supposed to gain about 10-15 (I'm overweight, boo). I'm worried that I'm gaining too fast!
But like PP said, if you're dr isn't concerned, you shouldn't be either.
16 weeks & I have lost 5lb.
Doctor is okay at this point with it.
I'm in the same boat -- in fact, I have lost weight! My doctor didn't seem too concerned at my 11 week appointment, but did mention that by my next (15 weeks) I should try to gain about 3 pounds.
Like other posters have said, I'm just trying to eat really healthy things, or at the very least, eat what sounds good to my stomach! :-)
A lot of people don't gain anything during the first tri or even lose weight. It's not a problem for the vast majority of people. Most of the weight gain happens in 2nd or 3rd tri anyway.
Plus, the goal isn't really to just gain weight, it's to nourish your and your baby's bodies. Just make sure you're eating when you're hungry and that you're making quality food choices like good protein, healthy fats, and of course fruits and veggies. As long as you're doing that you'll do just fine and your body will gain weight when it needs to!
cwildt:I haven't gained either, in fact I've lost a bit. But my tummy is measuring bigger and my um is smaller... That suits me pretty well!!
What's an "um"?
